A big wedding. On May 19, 2018, the wedding of Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan Markle took place at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, UK. A union that, according to information published by The Sunday Times in 2017, was not to the taste of Prince Philip.
Indeed, the latter would have advised Prince Harry not to marry Meghan Markle. The reason? His profession as an actress. “We go out with actresses, we do not marry them,” he would have launched him. As a reminder, Meghan Markle started in television in the 2000s, but it is thanks to her role as Rachel Zane in the series Suits that she became known.
Prince Harry, however, did not want to listen to the Duke of Edinburgh and said “yes” to the chosen one of his heart. The couple has now left the royal family and moved to the United States with Archie. They recently announced that they are expecting a baby girl and are in perfect love, away from the media spotlight.
They have created a lot of controversy. On March 7, the truthful interview of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with Oprah Winfrey was broadcast on the American channel CBS. In it, they did not hesitate to make shocking revelations about the royal family. However, according to information published by the Daily Mail a few weeks ago, Prince Philip had not been told the whole of it. “The family wants him not to know the full extent of the interview,” said Katie Nicholl, an expert on the British monarchy.
Indeed, very concerned about the health of Prince Philip, the royal family wanted to spare him as much as possible. “It is obviously impossible for him to escape everything that has been said, but the family has made some efforts to protect him from a maximum of revelations,” she said later, without specifying what he has been kept informed of.
Prince Philip, died at the age of 99
Prince Philip died this Friday, April 9 at the age of 99. “It is with deep sorrow that her majesty the queen announces the death of her beloved husband Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,” reads the statement, published on twitter shortly after 1 pm French time. Buckingham Palace then said that “his royal highness” died “peacefully this Friday morning at Windsor Castle. He had been hospitalized in London a few weeks after being vaccinated against Covid-19 and after months of isolation with the queen earlier this year. “He’s my rock. He has simply been my strength and support,” Elizabeth II had said. So it is without him that she will have to continue to rule.
